    Default Inspektah Deck-C.R.E.A.M.

    It's been twenty-two long hard years of still strugglin
    Survival got me buggin, but I'm alive on arrival
    I peep at the shape of the streets
    And stay awake to the ways of the world cause shit is deep
    A man with a dream with plans to make C.R.E.A.M.
    Which failed; I went to jail at the age of 15
    A young buck sellin drugs and such who never had much
    Trying to get a clutch at what I could not... could not...
    The court played me short, now I face incarceration
    Pacin -- going up state's my destination
    Handcuffed in back of a bus, forty of us
    Life as a shorty shouldn't be so ruff
    But as the world turns I learned life is hell
    Living in the world no different from a cell
    Everyday I escape from Jakes givin chase, sellin base
    Smokin bones in the staircase
    Though I don't know why I chose to smoke sess
    I guess that's the time when I'm not depressed
    But I'm still depressed, and I ask what's it worth?
    Ready to give up so I seek the Old Earth
    Who explained working hard may help you maintain
    to learn to overcome the heartaches and pain

    We got stickup kids, corrupt cops, and crack rocks
    and stray shots, all on the block that stays hot
    Leave it up to me while I be living proof
    To kick the truth to the young black youth
    But shorty's running wild smokin sess drinkin beer
    And ain't trying to hear what I'm kickin in his ear
    Neglected, but now, but yo, it gots to be accepted
    That what? That life is hectic

    Who or what is the "Old Earth"?

    Inspektah Meth-Tical


    This is one of the sickest verses ever.

    Old Earth = 5 Percenter Terminology for mother. Black men are god while women are the earth. Thus resulting in Old Earth, his mom and INS was one of her seeds.

    CREAM is one of the best hip hop songs ever. The lyrics are deep. I do think it's the best verse of Deck.
